Minnesota Lynx player Seimone Augustus says she had a "great conversation" with Roseville Police Chief Rick Mathwig after she was pulled over Monday for having an air freshener dangling from her rear-view mirror, the Pioneer Press reports.
Augustus thought it amounted to racial profiling, and she tweeted at length about it. Roseville police deny it was profiling. In any event, the star guard is moving on with her life, she says. "Everything has been addressed, and I had a great conversation with (Mathwig)," Augustus says in the Pioneer Press. "Both parties were angry about what happened. It's settled, and we are moving forward."
The Lynx will begin play in the WNBA finals on Sunday at Target Center.
Meanwhile, CityPages chided Augustus for being presumptuous: "... to toss out a racially profiling allegation in that instance seems pretty presumptuous." In turn, MPR's Bob Collins on Thursday morning chided CityPages for being presumptuous for referring to the "presumably Chinese police officer," whose name was Chau. After Collins' tweets (below), CityPages revised its online story.
